Featured: TrendyBride Magazine

Greatest Story Weddings recently had a wonderful opportunity to collaborate with Faith Teasley (Faith Teasley Photography) and Coastal Knot Bridal Boutique on an editorial for the summer/fall issue of TrendyBride Magazine. The latest issue that features Faith's gorgeous images is on newsstands now, including Barnes & Noble!

Faith asked that I create some special paper goods and decor touches centered on the idea of "Seashore Romance" to fit the vision for the editorial. Here's a special look at what I put together to tell the story of a couple getting married sea-side.


For this couple, I created an invitation suite that married sea glass and watercolor. The sea glass pieces you see in the suite are hand-drawn with watercolor pencil, then gone over with water to give a watercolor sensibility. The glass is drawn to look "placed" as the initials of the couple, Paizley and Sidney. (How awesome are both of those names?!)

The suite is finished with my own calligraphy.


My favorite elements that I created for the shoot are these unexpected escort cards. They're actually made from very inexpensive plastic petri dishes. I used a paint pen to customize each dish on the inside and from there, they were filled with sand and tiny seashells. The result is a lovely, on theme keepsake that is a beautiful welcome to any guest at a romantic beach wedding.


Lastly, I created this art print for couple's portraits. Such a lovely quote: "If love was water, I'd give you the sea."

Many thanks to all the wonderful vendors involved with "Seashore Romance," now available at local newsstands and online here
